Intrinsicum Potentia Counseling – Tap into your intrinsic strength for healing, growth and change.

Working with menWorking with Men

My academic and training interests included a special focus on the unique needs of men in counseling and approaches a therapist must take to successfully connect with and build the trust of male clients. My primary goal is to be the kind of therapist that men can be comfortable with and be a resource for them in improving their lives.

 

Individual Therapy for Men

Some men see counseling as admitting weakness or asking for help -- neither of which is considered acceptable for males in our culture. Some men don't like to talk about their feelings or let a "stranger' into their private lives. While some of that may ring true, the deeper truth is that most men want to live rich and fulfilling lives with satisfying relationships. The irony is that it takes tremendous courage and strength to turn into our challenges rather than to turn away. Seeking counseling is about investing in yourself and your future and it's about taking control.

Counseling is no different than hiring an attorney or a plumber or a contractor—when you want something done, you get the right resources to make it happen.

Common challenges many men face when their life and/or relationships are not where they want them to be:

  • Frequently irritable and/or angry.
  • Feeling misunderstood and can't seem to get others to see your point of view.
  • Difficulties with sleep -- either falling asleep, staying asleep or sleeping excessively.
  • Focus and productivity are down at work.
  • Frequently snapping at your boss, co-workers, your spouse/significant other or your children.
  • Feeling numb -- like you have no feelings at all.
  • Feeling directionless; questioning your career path or your life goals.
  • Frequently in conflict with your spouse or partner.
  • You want to be dating or in a relationship but can't seem to make progress.
  • Someone has encouraged you to seek counseling.
  • You are taking medications for depression or anxiety and your progress is insufficient.

Whatever the challenges you are facing, you can take control by taking action.
